What Will Your Students Experience?

What Will Your Students Experience?

Join us for a five-day advanced career academy designed to expand understanding of the world of cyber-physical computing systems that are all around us, building on our basic academy and focusing on more advanced topics. This is done in the context of working with Raspberry Pi personal computers and laptops to discover more advanced issues of cybersecurity, system configuration, networking, programming and circuit design. Throughout the week, students will have opportunities to discuss ethical and legal issues of cybersecurity.

Students will also get to tour Idaho National Lab's world-class facilities where researchers tackle the nation's most pressing problems. Interact with peers and mentors and explore the possibilities of a challenging and rewarding career path. On the last day of the academy, students use their new skills to solve challenging puzzles and "capture the flag." Participants must have attended the Introduction to Cybercore Career Academy in order to participate in this academy.


You Will Learn:

  • Advanced computing, using Windows and Linux
  • Programming with python
  • Circuit design
  • Binary, hex, encoding, and cryptography
  • Safe and secure online behavior
  • Cybersecurity "capture the flag"

Make new friends and great memories - can you hack it?

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. You can play games, create programs, control hardware like home automation and a lot more. This is an awesome machine to experiment and with. With a Raspberry Pi you will learn Linux and open up a whole area of programming and computing you never knew existed.
